Simple and timelessly stylish, this beautiful, ethical basket has been delicately constructed from plaited jute.
WHO MADE THIS BASKET?
Way back in 2002 when plastic bags were still spilling off the end of our supermarket tills, Turtle Bags was established to raise awareness of the hazards of plastic bags and sell alternatives. Plastic in our seas is a problem which is invisible to most of us in our daily lives but will be causing problems for many decades, disrupting food chains and suffocating sea life. Leatherback Turtles travel to British Waters looking for jellyfish. Sadly, they mistake our discarded plastic bags for their favourite food.
Turtle Bags works with fair trade partners at a women's empowerment programme in Rural Bangladesh to produce environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives to plastic bags!
